My Day - It's All About Me!


It's All About Me! At least, that's what I thought when I was about 1 or 2 years old! I've learned since then that I'm not the center of the universe. BUT.....today, I can show you a little about myself! 
My project uses the Amy Bradley pattern that we were so generously given (Thanks, Amy!), but I've changed it up a little to fit my circumstances! Instead of "I'm a little Biased", mine says, "I'm a little...BEE-DAZZLED, BEE-HIND, and BEE-WILDERED!" That's me in a nutshell! At least recently!  I've hung it in my sewing room so that I can laugh at myself amid the chaos!
 
I'm a little "bee dazzled". Since the name of my pattern business is connected with bees, I have started collecting "bee" items. I have cute little bee "knick knacks" in my sewing room. They make me smile. 
 I'm a little "bee-hind". I have projects piling up on me! I have so much to do in such a little bit of time!! Sometimes I start feeling very.....
                                      "bee-wildered"!

Because you stopped by I would like to give you  a chance to win the pattern for Miss Bumble, a cute little bee pin cushion. Just leave a comment for one chance to win and a second if you follow me on GFC (on my sidebar). (I'd like to get to 700. I'm so close!) The pattern will be emailed as a PDF to the winner. (She is super simple to make and comes with a verse so you can give one as a gift!)
Thanks to Mdm. Samm and Marlene for hosting this blog hop! Be sure to visit the "hoppers" below today to see more!
